The Tomtoc 15.6 Laptop Cross-Body Messenger Bag is a great alternative to the Herschel Sandford Laptop Messenger Bag and Case Logic Bryker Messenger Bag. I’m usually wary of Amazon only brands but TomToc has proven to be an outlier as their products seem to be of decent quality.
There are a couple of smart design features within the bag as it allows you to store a laptop, a tablet as well as two small water bottle quite easily. The device pockets are lined with a bit of felt which might help with scratch protection. The cover on the bag also has velcro tabs that can be released to make your laptop come out easier.
Tomtoc 15.6 Laptop Cross-Body Messenger Bag is made from non-descript nylon but provides decent water protection and the zippers are quite water resistant as well.
Out of all the laptop bags I reviewed, the Tomtoc 15.6 Laptop Cross-Body Messenger Bag is the only one with a side pocket which might be handy in certain instances. There is also a small holder that’s supposedly RFID safe but it seems too small to be useful. Our only complaint about the tomtoc 15.6 Laptop Cross-Body Messenger Bag is that the secondary pockets seem a little too small. Instead of having two zippered compartments, it should have been one.
The Tomtoc 15.6 Laptop Cross-Body Messenger Bag has decent capacity as it is able to hold a laptop, tablet, a couple of notebooks, a water bottle (or three) and whatever objects you have. Everything is secured using buckles as well as a velcro strap which is handy depending on how you want to secure all your things.
The only thing that we didn’t like about the handling of the product was the handle. It seemed more like an afterthought and grabbing your bag by the handle makes the entire package feel off-centered. Which is an unnerving feeling when you’re hauling around $1000’s of dollars of computer equipment with it. Pulling this bag from behind my car seat or from my trunk wasn’t smooth as other products as you had to dig around a bit to find the handle.
The Tomtoc 15.6 Laptop Cross-Body Messenger Bag also has the standard flap on the back of the bag so that you can slide your luggage handle through as you zip through the airport..
With all things considered, Tomtoc 15.6 Laptop Cross-Body Messenger Bag is a very easy bag to use.
